The agreement between Projekt DEAL institutions and Wiley is part of a nationally coordinated strategy to enable a large scale transition of today's scholarly journals to open access. As of 2019, researchers from Projekt DEAL institutions can now read all Wiley journals and publish their own primary research and review articles open access, retaining copyright of their works. Wiley will not charge fees to authors covered by the agreement. The Publish and Read (PAR) fees and Gold Open Access APC's related to the agreement will be paid centrally via institutions but might be subject to local institutional arrangements regarding internal allocation. To publish open access without having to pay Article Publication Charges (APCs), the following criteria must be met:
|Articles are made freely available|
|Meet open access mandates automatically|
|Under a Creative Commons license|
|To PMC for appropriate articles|
Eligible authors may publish open access in one of two ways:
|Publish in any of Wiley's fully gold Open Access journals (manuscript accepted on or after 22 Jan 2019) (View journal list) and follow the instructions in the PDF below.||Publish in any of Wiley’s hybrid journals that offer OnlineOpen (manuscript accepted on or after 1 July 2019) (View journal list) and follow the instructions in the PDF below.|
Please contact your university or library with questions.
1If you don't order OnlineOpen initially, your manuscript will be published under the traditional closed access model. You may order OnlineOpen retroactively, but once your paper is published in Early View or In Issue online you are no longer eligible to publish OnlineOpen at no charge
2If you are no longer affiliated with an eligible German institution at the point of acceptance of your paper, you do not qualify.
3Other article types e.g. letters, editorials etc. are excluded.
